Christian's fascination with virtual reality started in high school when he completely remodeled his entire school in the Quake 2 engine. Realizing virtual reality technology was still a ways off from being widely available, he instead chose a career in film making as a director, writer, producer and actor. During his film making days, Christian remained an avid gamer and kept himself informed of the latest gaming trends. At the E3 Expo in 2013, Christian had the opportunity to try out an Oculus DK1 and was instantly convinced that this was the future of several mediums, and that VR tech was finally meeting its potential. Not wanting the industry to advance without him, Christian decided to quite film making and dive into the world of VR. 

With no gaming development background, Christian taught himself how to program for VR in the Unreal Engine and co-founded VoyagerVR. The company was founded on the idea that virtual reality is a technological breakthrough that can be used for amazing concepts outside of just entertainment. So, within three months of self teaching he was able to release his first educational experience, Stonehenge VR. This program went on to inspire many users, became a launch title on HTC's Viveport, has been featured in several of the biggest tech, gaming, and entertainment blogs (Variety, CNET, Tech Crunch), was invited to give a college lecture at CSULB, and have installed exhibits in two of the most iconic museums in the country: the Pacific Science Center in Seattle, WA and the Museum at Prairiefire in Overland Park, KS.  

Voyager is currently working on creating new virtual reality experiences and adding more VoyagerVR exhibits in new museums.
